To access the small web, begin by installing Rust(300mb).
@neauoire if you’re referring to what i think you are, pretty sure you are already doing “the small web”
@neauoire Smol web big bytes
@neauoire Small web?
@neauoire weird, why would one have to install rust for anything but development?
@neauoire Come on it's small! Half a DivX!
@thomasorus It would be smaller in size to download the whole of plan9, and use the 9front gemini client.. And you get an entire new OS.
@neauoire I know, I was being sarcastic, sorry about this!
I agree it feels kinda big for just a programming language but I realize I've never asked myself how much a programming language weights.
After searching, on windows, node is around 30mo, Ruby without devkit is 10 (130 otherwise) and Python3 is 25mp. Rust is around 200mo. Very surprising indeed.
@tbd @thomasorus @neauoire weight of language isn't directly comparable to it's runtime or final executable size :P. Most recent GCC compressed is 130mb. Some languages do more at compile time and support more target. Ruby you download supports the target you ask it to and doesn't include bundler or etc for example.
@FredBednarski You mean
@neauoire haha, that's so much better!
